I can't see any reason not to use a single antenna on vessels that are 
voluntarily equipped with AIS. Time will tell if the recreational market is big 
enough for someone to make a suitable rig. It ought to be, in my opinion.

Hi, Mike — no, I highly doubt there will be any kind of upgrade path to allow 
the GX2200 to transmit.  That takes a bunch more electronics, and also a lot of 
FCC certification.  If you look at the new VHF/AIS transceiver, it’s actually 
got TWO antenna connections on the back; one for VHF and one for AIS.  That 
would be tough to add to the GX2200…   :^)
